Rumors & Leaks - Speculation/Discussion Thread [⚠️PLEASE HIDE STORY SPOILERS⚠️]

I feel like these leaks are the one thing that's been having us actually talk about the games. I'm hoping we get a leak or a trailer explaining how classes work, that's the final thing I'm curious about.
I’m hoping it’s similar to the Tasks in Arceus where we are given an assignment and must complete it before moving on.

I myself am very excited about the classes.

Actually having to go to school will for me help the game become truly immersive. It'll be especially useful for my character's narrative.

Hello hello hello. What's going on here? Seems kinda sus.

They could have definitely handled that differently, like finding some pretence for putting the player character in non-removable hiking clothes for that mirror maze or something like that.

Ka has confirmed new breeding mechanic is pretty much placing eggs with incubators and waiting an hour or 2.

Needs more info, such as where do we get the eggs (current theory is gifts from Pokemon at your picnic) and if there are ways to speed eggs hatching or how will this be different from daycare breeding overall.


Confirmed Donphans both keep their ground typings.

Confirmed that ground/fighting and grass/ground typed Pokemon are in the game. That comes down to that yes, the Mushroom Pokemon is grass/ground to counter Tentacruel's Water/Poison. As well as one of the Donphans are ground/fighting, since all Paradox Pokemon are dual types and there are no more ground types in the main dex available for that dual typing and that all grass types for Paradox Pokemon have been accounted for.

Also current theory is that the 3 remaining types for Paradox are Poison/Psychic and Rock

So for the final outstanders, people are thinking

Paradox Amoonguss: Grass/Dark (remaining dark type slot)
Violet Paradox Volcarona: Poison/Fire
Hariyama: Fighting/Psychic
Delibird: Ice/Rock
Magneton: Electric/Rock or Psychic

Is there any actual confirmation it’s paradox Magneton?
I thought the info just said “mag”, and that there’s a chance it’s Magcargo?

I suppose placing an egg in an incubator makes more sense than anything, though I do wish it didn't take actual time. Ah well, I suppose it doesn't affect me much as long as there isn't a side thing that requires a bunch of Pokemon, like Poke Pelago. I would, however, like to see how the picnics work. Do we make the sandwiches or buy them? According to the trailer there is a little fast food place that serves sandwiches but maybe that includes ingredients.

It could still be, but because there is an extra electric type remaining for Paradox Pokemon and that Fire tpyes have been accoutned for (unless Magcargo keeps its Rock typing to lose its Fire typing), many are leanign to Magneton line as the Pokemon.

Since we also know is in the game, Magcargo still is unconfirmed for the dex overall.

Yeah, I assume it will be Magneton for now. Can't rule out Magcargo, Magikarp or Magmar completely yet but until we have a something more concrete my guess is something connected to the Magneton line.

Magikarp makes most sense lore-wise as Magikarp's Dex entry said it was strong in the past

Not a big fan of waiting on eggs to hatch for 1-2 hours, but I suppose it could be worse. I tend to breed for shinies a lot, though, so hopefully that doesn't get too annoying. I hope there's a way to speed it up somehow!

I think it'd be a problem for shiny hatching only if there's a limit for the amount of eggs in the incubator, otherwise you'll just have to let like 70 eggs there waiting and after one hour there'll be a very big gacha pull of 70 pokémon

Why would a Future Delibird be Rock type?

One thing I'm curious about is how the paradox forms are connected to terastalizing since each gimmick is somehow related to the region's story &/or lore:
  • Mega evolution was a side effect of the Ultimate Weapon since the mega stones were created from the energy caused by the blast
  • Z-moves are possible because the Z-Crystals are shards of Necrozma's body
  • Dynamax is caused by the radiation that Eternatus left behind after the Darkest Day
The paradox forms are obviously related to Scarlet & Violet's lore or story since Koraidon & Miraidon are paradox forms of Cyclizar, so I'm wondering how terastalization fits into all this

Yes that was my reasoning, also climate change and play on Rockhopper Penguins.

That Terastalizing and Tera Crystals are literally just physical time crystals created by the hypothetical 3rd Legendary and Paradox forms have ended up here in Paldea due to the energy of the crystals messing with the flow of time.

My guess.

It's supposed to be related to the DLC third legendary
